    At Anni, I had the pleasure of announcing the recipients of the Amyrlin Awards.

    First, our Volunteer of the Year went to Brandon Tataru. Brandon has shown exemplary dedication to TarValon.Net. He served as Company Commander of Dai M'Hael two terms in a row, when no one else was able to take the term after him. He's now serving -- very enthusiastically and with great heart -- as Master of Soldiers and Accepted. I truly appreciate what Brandon has done for the site in his time here.

    Next, Philanthropist of the Year goes to Deoan Kakarot. Deoan stepped into the Director of Technology position even though his life was super busy at the time, and he's remain in that role despite life remaining busy. Bela, our IRC chat bot, has been hosted on Deoan's personal server for years, and he's now using his personal equipment to hold our back-ups (or is planning to). On top of these physical things, Deoan also gives us his expert tech advice for free -- he works in tech, and then comes here and does more tech stuff. I thank him for being good at what he does, and having the knowledge I don't, and always providing excellent advice regarding tech (and other) things.

    Our Unsung Servant for this year is Maibella ni Rhoiden t'al'Varrak. Maibella has been the Editor of the Tar Valon Times since 2015 -- an amazing time span! She works relentlessly behind the scenes to make sure each issue of the TVT is released on time. Please join me in recognizing Maibella for her hard work and dedication to the TVT and our community.

    The Member of the Year is Eluial Aldaran. I had several Directors recommend her for recognition, and since they span different departments and different specialty areas, the only award that fit was the Member of the Year. Eluial took over the Tower Twitter last year, and has done a superb job at keeping up with it. I'm lucky to see some of her behind-the-scenes discussions with Jeffan, and not only is she good at it, but she has fun with it, and delights in the conversations that spring up from her tweets. Eluial is also Head of the Brown Ajah, and I have it from a source that she's done a fantastic job there. Thank you, Eluial, for all you do for TarValon.Net.
